Oil Drum Sculptures

Repurposing discarded oil drums and other discarded metals not only cleans up the African landscape, but also produces stunning and delightful works of art.




These richly detailed, freestanding lion sculptures are welded outside of Nairobi using recycled oil drums and other scrap metal. Each lion is handcrafted from the ground up and is one-of-a-kind.

The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside, with the metal developing a patina with exposure to the elements.

Size: 56" long (nose to tail) x 30" tall x 14" max width

Made in: Kenya

About the Artisan:

Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular, metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.
